Not to be confused with Holden Kingswood.
The Chevrolet Kingswood was a 4-door station wagon produced by Chevrolet in 1959 and 1960, and again from 1969 to 1972 built on the GM B Body platform.
The Kingswood was deliberately made to be unique: the headlights were placed as low as the law would allow, and the cats eye tail lights were unique to this model. Its flat, wing shaped tailfins were identifiable from a distance. The car was built on a 119 in (3,000 mm) wheelbase and was 211 in (5,400 mm) long, which was 11 in (280 mm) longer than the 1957 model, making the Kingswood the longest car in the low-priced range. In addition, the car was 3 in (76 mm) wider outside and had 5 in (130 mm) more width inside than it did in 1958, through the reduction of door thickness. The frame GM X frame had no side rails.
The new Kingswood was offered as a mid range full size 4-door only 9 passenger model, with rear-facing 3rd row jump-seat standard. It was positioned between the Parkwood 6-passenger and the Nomad (now Impala based), still at the top was a six-passenger car. Wagons were still classed by themselves, but had model numbers matching the car series. Chevrolet eliminated its entry-level Delray based Yeoman models and the Biscayne-based Brookwood became Chevrolet's least expensive wagon models. Brookwoods were now available in two-door or four-door body styles, both in six-passenger configuration only. The new Parkwood 6-passenger and new Kingswood 9-passenger wagons had Bel Air's model number, and as such were the middle range wagons. A variety of speed options, such as fuel injection, special cams and lowered compression, gave horsepower ratings up to 315. The Nomad was still the top Chevy wagon. A parking brake warning light was optional. Under the hood, little change took place for '59 Chevys.
Few alterations were made for 1960. The new models possessed much more restrained front end, and the cats eye lights of the 1959 model were replaced by double cone tail lights. Under the hood, things remained constant. Fuel injection was no longer available, but with the 348 cubic inch engine, a horsepower rating of 335 at 5800 rpm was now achieved. This involved the use of three double-barrel carburetors, a special cam and an 11.25:1 compression ratio, all sold as a package.
Buyers could order any engine and transmission, including the 348 V8 and the fuel-injected 283 V8 engines.
- 235 cu in (3.9 L) Blue Flame straight six
- 283 cu in (4.6 L) 195 bhp (145 kW; 198 PS) to 290 bhp (216 kW; 294 PS) Turbo Fire small block V8
- 348 cu in (5.7 L) 250 bhp (186 kW; 253 PS) to 350 bhp (261 kW; 355 PS) W-series Turbo Thrust big block V8
Chevrolet's 1959 and '60 Kingswoods (as well as the rest of Chevy's full size line up) still featured Chevrolet's "Safety-Girder" cruciform frame introduced in '58. Similar in layout to the frame adopted for the 1957 Cadillac, it featured box-section side rails and a boxed front cross member that bowed under the engine, these "X-frames" were used on other 1958 to 1964 Chevys, as well as Cadillac. The rear was tied together by a channel-section cross member. This design was later criticized as providing less protection in the event of a side impact collision, but would persevere until 1965.
Discontinuation and replacement
General Motors discontinued the Chevrolet Kingswood wagon nameplate after only two years. For 1961 they offered a third row nine-passenger option on Brookwood to fill the void. The wagon only nameplates Brookwood, Parkwood, and Nomad were gone for 1962, instead naming their station wagons after their series names: Biscayne (replacing Brookwood directly), Bel Air and Impala. The 1962-'64 Biscayne, Bel Air, and Impala wagons were very similar to Chevy's 1961 wagon models.
The Kingswood name returned for the 1969 model year, based on the Impala, and was available only with a V8. It slotted above the Chevrolet Townsman; a Caprice-based Kingswood Estate model was added at the top of the range with exterior woodgrain paneling. Throughout this period, the Kingswood was available in both two- and three-seat models; a power rear window was initially standard equipment for the latter and optional for the former. For 1971, the power rear window became standard for both models.
Midway through the 1971 model year, the Turbo-Hydramatic transmission became standard, and the three-speed manual transmission was eliminated. A Turbo-Hydramatic had been ordered on nearly all Kingswoods built during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
For 1973, Chevrolet eliminated the Kingswood Estate/Kingswood, along with their Townsman and Brookwood sister nameplates, for its full-sized station wagons; they now utilized the Bel Air, Impala, and Caprice nameplates from their sedan counterparts.
Original 348: 1959 Chevrolet Kingswood
After many years in storage this 1959 Kingswood has been resurrected and is looking for a new owner. There’s plenty to like about this wagon beginning with the fact that it looks to be very original and intact. The list of options is impressive beginning with a numbers matching 348 mated with a turboglide transmission, 3rd row seating, power steering, padded dash. two speed wipers, a functioning power rear window and a rare and complete luggage rack. Found on Ebay in Santa Rosa, California the starting bidding was at $15,200 with the reserve unmet on the first day of the auction posting.
The body looks to be very straight although a few minor rust spots are reported. The chrome and trim pieces look to be in good shape and intact. Correct bias tires were added and really pop in the pictures. With the giant sweeping bat fins and the cat eye tail lights, there’s no mistaking a 1959 Chevy! I’ve always thought it must have been difficult to execute some of the outrageous 50’s designs into the wagons but GM did a great job with the 1959 Chevy.
The mostly original Aspen green paint has a fantastic patina but for me this car is a perfect candidate for what should be a relatively easy restoration.
The ‘deck’ of the massive fins look like they could double as an aircraft carrier. Note how the seat pattern mimics the fins. The tailgate panel looks to be in great shape indicating little use of the third seat or cargo area. The seller indicates that the interior is original and in excellent shape with a few minor tears. The padded dash is also said to be free of any cracks. As good as it looks I’d love to see more detailed interior pictures.
The odometer sits at 70,000 and is no longer working but it’s hard to believe the miles are too much higher. The matching numbers 348 V8 will give plenty of power. Much of the engine bay looks original but a newly painted engine and valve covers is evident. There is also a new period correct battery. In 1959 Chevy built 210,000 station wagons but given the nature of how they were used it’s hard to believe that too many exist with a with the options and originality of this Kingswood. I expect there will be plenty of interest in this one.

In a matter of seconds, she inflamed an unbridled flame of desire in his entire body, but Milava, as suddenly as she clung to him, drew back, grinned and ran. Along the road away from the village, as if riding the flashes of lightning streaming in the sky above their heads.
The taken aback young man for a couple of seconds with admiration looked at the receding outline of her body, and then, as if waking up, rushed after her.

Putting my hand into his panties, I discovered that the penis was still soft. Then I took his hand and put it on my chest, which was freed from the bra. The member immediately hardened.
